GREEN BAY (WXOW) - It was fitting that Lambeau Field's 300th regular season game featured the same match-up and a similar result as it's first. That game, played in 1957, ended in a 21-17 Green Bay win. On Thursday, the Packers won 23-10.
The game started as a defensive battle with neither team scoring in the first quarter. The Packers did get on the board first in the second quarter thanks to a Mason Crosby field goal. Crosby lined up for another later in the quarter, but instead of holding the ball for the kick, Punter Tim Masthay tossed a shovel pass to Michael Crabtree who ran it in 27 yards for a Packers touchdown.
Green Bay's defense hammered Jay Cutler, sacking him seven times and forcing him to throw four interceptions. One of those in the second quarter thrown to Tramon Williams, set up a 26 yard pass and catch from Aaron Rodgers to Donald Driver to make it a 23-3 Packers lead.
Chicago added a late touchdown, but Green Bay would be able to hold off the Bears, winning by 13. The Packers improve to 1-1 on the season and don't play again until Monday, September 24th when they head to Seattle.
